Wine Down with Marie Benedict | Lady Clementine

January 8th 2020 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Wine down with Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling author of The Only Woman in the Room, on Wednesday, January 8th at Hub City Bookshop! Her latest novel, Lady Clementine (available 1/7), focuses on Winston Churchill's influential wife, Clementine Churchill.

In 1909, Clementine steps off a train with her new husband, Winston. An angry woman emerges from the crowd to attack, shoving him in the direction of an oncoming train. Just before he stumbles, Clementine grabs him by his suit jacket. This will not be the last time Clementine Churchill will save her husband. 

Lady Clementine is the ferocious story of the ambitious woman beside Winston Churchill, the story of a partner who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender either to expectations or to enemies.

"Benedict is a true master at weaving the threads of the past into a compelling story for today. Here is the fictionalized account of the person who was the unequivocal wind beneath Winston Churchill's wings — a woman whose impact on the world-shaper that was World War II has been begging to be told. A remarkable story of remarkable woman."—Susan Meissner,  bestselling author of The Last Year of the War

"The atmospheric prose of Marie Benedict draws me in every single time. Lady Clementine's powerful and spirited story is both compelling and immersive. Benedict fully inhabits the measured and intelligent voice of Clementine Churchill. Entranced throughout, I discovered the secrets behind a familiar story I thought I knew. Deftly moving from the early nineteen hundreds through World War II, Benedict skillfully paints a vivid picture of the times and life of Clementine, the remarkable woman who was the steady force beside Winston Churchill." —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis 

"With a historian's eye and a writer's heart, Benedict provides an unforgettable glimpse into the private world of a brilliant woman whose impact and influence on world events deserves to be acknowledged."—Lynda Cohen Loigman, author of The Two-Family House and The Wartime Sisters
